Be patient young Grasshopper…

Hey Zach, can we get a few more of these?

As July winds down to a blurry end, shop Joey’s around the great state of Montana are busily restocking the crap out of Morrish’s Hopper. According to the USDA, swarms of grasshoppers will soon descend upon us like Locusts and destroy everything in their path. Now I’m starting to wonder if I ordered enough flies. No worries, our good buddy Zach Mertens at Idylwilde will surely come to the rescue if things get dire.

No, this is not another New Zealand porn shoot. This is local boy James Anderson and the giant brown he landed on the Yellowstone last week. While we were flailing around with bobbers and dry flies, James, in true John Holmes style, put the meat on the table. Fortunately for Mrs. Brown, James is a sensitive, noble angler and she was released unharmed. Congratulations, James!

Hey Joe’s House of Porn
02.12.10

After intercepting BHK’s first NZ field report of the new year we decided to send our very own Hey Joe Hyde down south to see if indeed NZ trout fishing doesn’t suck ass or if BHK had finally figured out how to use Photoshop…

Hey Dave, Brad says you’re looking for NZ fishing porn.  Here’s today’s catch!  It’s been pretty amazing so far….Brad knows his shit, and the fish (for the most part) have been accommodating.
Anyway, here’s some more pics, and we’ll send you the one of Brad’s 12 pounder tomorrow!

How are things in MT?

A recently intercepted email from Sweaty Waders New Zealand field emissary BHK, who dispels the myth that trout fishing in NZ really sucks balls…

Before you look at the pictures I sent you guys, remember to keep your expectations low when you come and play in New Zealand!!

SO…. Repeat after me…. “one fish a day is good, and a 4 pound trout is a big fish”! Again…. “one fish a day is good, and a 4 pound trout is a big fish”!!…… O.K now you can look below:)

I had very memorable day today on a stream called Magoo creek. Pxx,Jxx and Jxxxx fished it with me three years ago. But this time I went much further up river. So far that I had a 3.5 hour return walk back to the car! I landed 23 fish up there today. I bet I spotted 60 trout or more.  Big guy’s were- 10 pound brown, a 7.25 brown, and a 7 pound rainbow. The rest were all nice bows around 2.5 to 5 pounds. I pulled two mice out of the ass of a smaller 4 pounder as well.



Yes we reccommend streamer fishing!

Congratulations to Eric “the Serbian” Paramore for his monster brown caught near Livingston on Tuesday.  Eric deifnes the term “hardcore angler” and earns all the big fish he catches. Good job Eric!!
*Note:  Our blog shows big fish being held by the people that catch them.
